Check your track bar, shocks and if the seat bolts are tight.

things that might make that noise. as stated earlier. track bar, shocks missing the bushing, leaf springs( bushings, center pin, bolts). check trans and t-case mounts and bolts. exhaust system. u-joints. check play in the third member. make sure kids didn't leave a coke can rolling around in back. thats about every thing I can think of. Unless you have a ladder bar and the welds broke.
